I also have insomnia which is killing me every night and i'm afraid that it might stay with me forever. I'm sure that I have difficulty in sleeping is because of my insomnia.

Hello, Self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: Take Bakson's Mig-Aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day.

Mild swelling post operative over forehead and eyes is normal. That will resolve over few days. Do not worry about that. And about his behavior, there are some changes in behavior after brain injury especially in case of frontal lobe. So give him some time. All will settle with time.

What I can advise you is that you will have to elaborate in detail your symptoms especially numbness etc. Also you will have to get a complete workup of your blood investigations which from my side will include: cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d and serum vitamin b 12 levels, thyroid profile get these tests done empty stomach from a good lab like srl or Dr. Lal's and send reports across to me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Consult a neurosurgeon who is trained to handle brain tumors. These days multiple treatment options are available for brain tumors but primary treatment still is surgical removal.

If you are a diabetic with high cholestrol levels and smoking, you could have suffered from cerebral haemmorge due to uncontrolled sugars and blood pressure. Pl abstain from high fat high cholestrol high salt diet and smoking/alcoholism and exercise regularly. Everything will be fine in due course. Avoid stress as much as possible too.

Homoeopathic medicine can cure insomnia completely within 2 to 3 weeks. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. 100% rapid and effective results. While taking homoeopathic medicines you must avoid coffee and soft drinks. And also as accessory management take a luke warm bath daily after dinner. Avoid tea after 6 pm. Drink one glass of milk mixed with cardamom powder at 9 pm. Switch off mobile or keep away from bed. After lying in bed deeply relax by concentrating on breath in and out.

migrane can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed by me, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I have Numbness of right toe.Please do help

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Decreased sensations in toe region can be due to nerve entrapment either in spine region of around the ankle in one of the compartments or other causes which can lead to a neuropathy. But to think about common causes first, - modify your footwear to make it loose so that there is no compression - start physical therapy especially with tens as a modality - start with medicines for neuropathic symptoms like pregabalin and methycobalamin. If your symptoms do not show improvement, then we will require nerve conduction studies and some blood tests. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
